Why Professional Development Matters



November 1st marks the new professional year at The Logistics Institute (did you know our professional year runs from November 1st to October 31st?).

In honour of our “New Year” we wanted to take some time, and in deference to those who are new to The Logistics Institute, to help you understand our story.

Quick Facts:

  • The Logistics Institute’s vision is to develop certified, accredited leaders, regardless of their role or responsibilities.
  • We emphasize that the key to organizational success is having the right people, with the right skills, in the right roles. 
  • The P.Log is not an ordinary certification – it is unique in that it provides personal development as well as professional development
  • Our P.Log pathways aren’t lecture-based; apply your knowledge to real-world scenarios and push yourself out of your comfort zone.
  • While the P.Log is naturally ideal for those in the SCL industry, we view our programs as opportunities for everyone to develop their skills through the lens of supply chain and logistics challenges. Everyone deals with logistics, whether you’re planning birthday party, or moving goods from halfway across the world – the P.Log benefits everyone.

For a broader view of The Logistics Institute, we encourage you to visit
